  1. 1. Better lives through livestock COHESA: Capacitating One Health in Eastern and Southern Africa Theo Knight-Jones, ILRI Alexandre Caron, CIRAD Margaret Karembu, ISAAA Capacitating One Health in Eastern and Southern Africa (COHESA) partner orientation workshop 16 December 2021
  2. 2. 2 Agenda 1500-1505 – Opening remarks – (Theo) 1505-1510 - Comments from ILRI DDG Dieter Schillinger 1510-1530 – One Health in context (Alex Caron, CIRAD) 1530-1545 – COHESA Project overview (Theo) 1545-1600 – Q & A 1600-1620 – The COHESA Consortium and their related work (ILRI, CIRAD, ISAAA) 1620-1625 – buffer or break 1625-1645 - The Work Packages, project structure and multipliers (Theo) 1645-1705 - Q &A – discussion – 1705-1715 - More details, timing and what’s next (Theo) 1715-1725 - Q & A 1525-1730 - Closing remarks (Margaret)
  3. 3. 3 Objectives Everyone in the consortium understands the project o What it will do o How it will operate o The role of the multiplier
  4. 4. 4 Project Overview - Donor interest - Design meeting - Project development - Launch
  5. 5. 5 Capacitating One Health in East and Southern Africa (COHESA) Duration: 48 Months – Start December 2021 Budget: 9,294,118 EUR Countries: Eastern Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda) Southern Africa (Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe) Underlined are Deep Dive countries…more to follow Consortium: - ILRI – Consortium lead - CIRAD - ISAAA
  6. 6. 6 COHESA - Overall objective: The project aims to generate an inclusive Research & Innovation ecosystem, facilitating rapid uptake, adaption and adoption of solutions to One Health (OH) issues, with the OH concept embedded across society in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA), working for healthy humans, animals and environments using a systems approach to learning.
  7. 7. 7 Objectives - Increased relevance of OH research and policies in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) - Enhanced national and subregional cross-sectoral collaboration between government entities with OH mandates and OH stakeholders across society - Educational and research institutes equipped to train the next generation workforce in tackling OH issues - Increased capacity of government and non-governmental stakeholders to identify and deliver OH solutions to final beneficiaries
  8. 8. 8 Society wide OH capacity building - Gov- Help governments to do OH better – work together – engage stakeholders - Government entities with OH mandates and OH stakeholders across society capacitated in cross-sectoral collaboration around OH - Gov - Government capacity development in specific OH skills - Government entities capacitated in the development of evidence-based OH strategies and enabling policies - Education -Include OH in curricula - National secondary, tertiary and vocational education institutes strengthened in providing OH courses for the next generation workforce - Research - Mentor and support research institute to do better OH research - Research institutes capacitated in training next generation OH researchers - Research institutes capacitated in identification, development, adaption and delivery of OH solutions (technologies, soft skills and strategic approaches for addressing current challenges) - Delivery - Support delivery of a OH program in the country for focal topic as a model of success - OH delivery Service providers (public, private) capacitated in identification, adoption and delivery of OH solutions - OH related Public-Private Partnerships strengthened in delivery of OH solutions and consultation on OH issues - Evaluate and knowledge sharing - Baseline-Endline-OH Observatory - Knowledge and Information on OH research and policies in ESA promoted through project website and other platforms
  9. 9. Consortium Multipliers Research Education Government Human Animal Environment Plant One Health Service Providers Farmer/Land-Owner/Consumer/VC Actor Lead by Consortium -Delivered through Multipliers
  10. 10. 10 Project design The Consortium (ILRI, primarily in East Africa; CIRAD, primarily in Southern Africa; and ISAAA AfriCenter) = work with in-country multiplier organisations (mostly One Health research and implementation organisations) = deliver the project to beneficiaries, mainly government, education, research and service providers engaged in One Health.

  13. 13. 13 Project design
  14. 14. 14 WP1 – Understanding and furthering OH capacity, knowledge and information sharing in ESA A1.1 Initial engagement with government and other OH stakeholders in target countries to obtain buy-in for the project. A1.2 Baseline assessment of national OH capacity, gaps, and opportunities. This assessment allows measurement of the OH performance of each country before and after the intervention stage. A1.3 Identification of national OH Focal Topics. The identification of Focal Topics allows finetuning of the Action’s activities per country. A1.4 Establishment of a OH Observatory for Eastern and Southern Africa. A1.5 Endline assessment of national OH capacity, gaps, and opportunities. This assessment allows establishing the endline OH performance of each country.
  15. 15. 15 WP2 – Promoting national and regional OH collaboration and governance A2.1 Training and learning support to government entities on OH collaboration and governance. A2.2 Strengthening of the operation of existing or new OH platforms that involve cross-government collaboration and engage diverse OH stakeholders. A2.3 Training and learning support to government entities on addressing gaps and weaknesses in existing OH goals, strategies, action plans and policies and developing new OH planning instruments.
  16. 16. 16 WP3 – Building the future OH workforce A3.1 Benchmarking of tertiary OH training. A3.2 Implement benchmarking of OH relevant tertiary education courses and modules. A3.3 Co-develop short courses on general OH for a range of students from school children to higher education, to professionals. A3.4 Capacitate secondary and tertiary education institutes to deliver OH long and short courses. A3.5 Capacitate research institutes to train next generation OH researchers.

  18. 18. 18 WP4 – Delivering OH solutions A4.1 Capacitate research institutes to identify, develop, adapt and deliver OH solutions for OH Focal Topics. A4.2 Capacitate service providers to adopt and deliver OH solutions to final beneficiaries. A4.3 Capacitate PPPs to deliver OH solutions to final beneficiaries. A4.4 Identify key actors(e.g. from among government entities, research institutes, service providers, the public) and understand their relationship in the process of solution identification, development, adaption, adoption and delivery for a Focal Topic, and identify the users and beneficiaries.
  19. 19. 19 WP5 – Managing the project A5.1 Establish and review agreements with the consortium members. A5.2 Establish the project management structure. A5.3 Organise project meetings. A5.4 Setting up a financial management system. A5.5 Setting up a communication and visibility system. A5.6 Setting up a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) system, including risk management practices. A5.7 Engagement with local multipliers. A5.8 Engagement with target groups and national governments. A5.9 Communication with the Contracting Authority. A5.10 Plan in-country activities.
  20. 20. 20 Deep Dive Vs Lite Deep Dive – Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe - Get all activities - Start straight away Lite – Get most of WP1, Baseline/endline OH evaluation - A lot of WP2 – OH collaboration and governance - Some WP3 – OH training and education - Variable WP4 – Delivering OH solutions - Staggered start
